Ola (after E. Weston)

patinated bronze,

live size

A female nude made in bronze, inspired by a photograph by Edward Weston which the artist saw in a shop window during her stay in London. On her return to Poland, inspired by the pose of the woman photographed by Weston, the sculptress made three full-figure female sculptures. The other two were made by the artist from her imagination. The female figure is characterised by an extraordinary delicacy of its depiction and melancholy at the same time. The composition was made by the artist in her studio at Poleczki Street in Warsaw.
